Fabulously accurate portrayal of Miami's underbelly. Wolfe captures all the nuances of this "welding pot" metropolis. Rich characters. Good pacing. And satisfying ending. Like fine wine, Wolfe betters with age.
Wonderful writing. Unbreathably articulate. Some of the best delineation of God, man and that chasm. I only wish I had yet to listen so I could begin again.
Another riveting story by a master story teller. This is sit in your drive-way good. The best Grisham? I don't know. But wonderfully fun, fast paced with a satisfying conclusion. Five Huzzahs.
However Wilson is a fabulous reader. Engaging. Good character differentiation. Superb pacing. Had he had decent prose it would have been a perfect listen.
Ninety percent of the book is A+. Solid Clancy. At the end, the end he pulls Wolfe "Man in Full" style plot twist. What?! Other than that... Great book.
This is my fifth or sixth "Special Forces" type book. Most I've liked. This was slow. Maybe too many writers (I count four, including bits from his wife). Lack of compelling details. I'm sure Kyle was a good soldier but as for book writing, hopefully there will be professional writer that will do justice to his story. Standing in the kitchen doesn't make one a chef.
Solid sparse writing. Fast moving plot. This is my favorite Connelly book with Harry Bosch. One of the best books in this genre I've listened to in a very long time. Cariou's performance is good, too. Five stars all around.
An okay story that goes on and on and on. Brilliant in it's subtlety. Occasional bursts of greatness. For me, the perfect listen for a cross country car ride.
Good story. Fast paced. Fun ending. It's all the good stuff I remember about Grisham. Thanks for returning to your genre. You've been missed.
11-22-63 proves that some of the best things are those finished later, King started the book in 1972. It has just the right amount of suspension of belief, action, and the occasional gore all wrapped up with believable historical accuracy.
Not typically a King fan this book is a delightful surprise. There's even a tender love story interwoven in the narrative. Lots of happy hours of listening and some of the best audiobook narration I've heard (especially his Brinkley impression). Three cheers!
